Call your doc: That kind of change is something your surgeon should hear about.

Yes & no : My recommendation is to stop your rehab exercises for the time being , ice the affected knee , avoid weight baring , start using your crutches again and contact your Orthopefic surgeon ASAP for further instructions . Hopefully no real damage has been done except staying in a Rehab longer . Good luck .
